A few quotes:

Peter Brabeck-Letmathe of Nestlé questioned whether the recent political changes witnessed in the Middle East were "deep enough or fast enough". "It is not a question of whether a country or region changes but whether that change is sufficient to compete in the modern economy," he said.

Hoshyar Zebari, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iraq, said at the opening of the World Economic Forum in Jordan 2005 that while the world has been arguing over the rights and wrongs of the war in Iraq, the country has transformed itself "remarkably" into an emerging democracy.

"Cutting down all barriers and encouraging trade would be an incentive for investors," Lubna Olayan, CEO, Olayan Financing Company, Saudi Arabia, and Co-Chair of the World Economic Forum in Jordan 2005 .
